Description
 
Nepenthes ephippiata can best be described by comparing it to its better-known relative Nepenthes lowii.  Like Nepenthes lowii, Nepenthes ephippiata's most unique feature is the presence of spiky "hairs" on the underside of its lid.  The function of these hairs is still not known, although several theories exist.  The pitchers of Nepenthes ephippiata are larger than those of N. lowii, and they don't have as extreme of an hour-glass shape.  Nepenthes ephippiata also grows faster than N. lowii, and has an enormous lid compared to other Nepenthes.

N. Ephippiata April 30, 2013
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Lansing, MI United States  
I have purchased several plants from Predatory Plants now and have been extremely impressed with the health and quality of the plants. The packaging is also excellent. The N. Ephippiata is a vigorous grower and arrives with several small pitchers already.

Nepenthes August 20, 2012
Reviewer: Michael Kelty from Taylor, MI United States  
I ordered several Nepenthes from Josh. There was a slight delay in shipment so he gave me not one but two free Nepenthes with my order!  The plants were healthy and looked great!  Communication was great and the packing was amazing!  I highly recommend doing business with Predatory Plants and I shall do more in the future.

Arrived quickly and in great condition! November 25, 2011
Reviewer: Eric Lau from Carlsbad, CA United States  
Yes, although the XS size is small, but the pitchers are decently-sized in proportion to the plant, and it is a strong, healthy seedling. Can't wait for it to grow up!

N. Ephippiata September 20, 2011
Reviewer: Takeo Inoue from North Bergen, NJ United States  
It was a little bit expensive for XS, but it seems that healthy enough to adjust new environment. It already has three picthers for that size. I have to control humidity to keep these.
